Hey Everyone

I was in today to sort finance for my Stinger which I get next week. I asked the manager what happened to the nice yellow one in the showroom and he said it's a good job you didn't go for that one in the end as Kia has had to recall the Yellow ones as the paint can fall off. 

Just thought I'd let people know.

Thanks
Jason

Sales of the Micro Blue and Yellow have been stopped in the United States and Yellow in Australia, some reports of full re-sprays or KIA buying back the car on various forums.

There are posts on the stingerforum.org in the Exterior section "Paint Chips" and "Sunset Yellow removed as option in Australia" posts.

Have to see how this pans out and how it affects UK models  

No problems on my one

Found paint chips very easily.  Got a couple across the bonnet.
Having said that the Chroma red looks fantastic.

Sorry for the delay David as I’ve been working away I have spoken to the dealer at this time there is no recalls on stingers.
So will have to wait
